Keeping Your Immune System Healthy

By and Tuesday, 07 April 2020 12:48 PM Current | Bio | Archive

During the 2019 Golden Globes ceremony, hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh surprised the crowd by bringing out actors dressed as medical personnel to deliver free flu shots to celebrities. Oh told the crowd, "You know you wore a sleeveless gown for a reason!"

Samberg added, "If you are an anti-vaxxer, just put a napkin on (or perhaps over) your head and we will skip you."

We certainly hope that in the next year or so they'll be able to advocate for the COVID-19 vaccine.

But until then, it's essential that you keep your respiratory and immune systems as healthy as possible (the coronavirus attacks the lungs).

Making sure you get enough sleep, take a daily a multivitamin, engage in moderate physical activity, and eat a vegan diet are some ways to bolster your immune system so you can fight back against the virus.

A flu vaccine is also a smart step. During the 2018-2019 flu season, the flu vaccine was estimated to have prevented some 4.4 million illnesses. And research indicates the vaccine makes the flu less severe if you do catch it.

If you're worried about the COVID-19 (57% of Americans say they are afraid it will hurt the economy; 47% are afraid they or someone in their family will get the virus), do something about upgrading your lifestyle choices and get a flu shot.

You'll reduce your 10-year rate of death more than getting COVID-19 will increase it.
